Overwatch: the Foreign Intrigue Podcast, Episode 2 (United States Presidential Candidates and Foreign Policy)

Episode 2: United States Presidential Candidates and Foreign Policy

In the follow-up episode to Episode One of the Overwatch Podcast, guest contributor Chris Masiello once again joins Foreign Intrigue Managing Editor and Senior Writer Eric Jones for an in-depth discussion on the foreign policy visions of the major candidates running for their respective party’s nomination in the 2016 Presidential election.

Eric and Chris explore the backgrounds of the five Republican and two Democratic Party candidates in detail, examining the experience and judgement that each would bring to the Oval Office as the next President of the United States. How would each formulate strategy to combat the enemies of the country? What, if any, experience provides us clarity on how each would manage the national security apparatus? What role does each candidate view the military and diplomatic corps serving in their administration?
